(ANS - Rome) - The second festival of Euroclip, the short film competition sponsored by the Youth Ministry of ICP (the Special Circumscription of Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta), ended with the victory of the oratory of Valdocco with the short film “Don Bosco was here, Don Bosco is always here”. The final night was celebrated in Valdocco on 30 May.

The theme of this year's competition was the motto that accompanied the pilgrimage of the relic throughout Italy, "Don Bosco is here." However, as the organizers were keen to point out, this was not just a slogan, but an invitation to portray the everyday life of the Salesian works, where Don Bosco is still alive and active among young people.

The first prize went, then, to the oratory of Valdocco. The many merits of their short film were acknowledged, such as its "impeccable technical production from the aspect of photography and colour, its “originality” understood in the etymological sense of 'returning to the origins,' the quality of the actors and the strong characters of the film."

The oratory of Pinerolo was awarded second place for the short film "Down Hill". It was commended for its "wise and balanced production, highly creative screenwriting, and the message carried by a fine soundtrack that was well integrated into the script."

Still in the running for third place are the oratory of San Benigno, with "Symphony in Db", the Vocational Training Centre in Valdocco with "Me and Him", and the oratory of Rebaudengo, with "1864". Readers can vote until midnight on June 22 using the "Like" click on the Facebook page of the SYM in Piedmont, Valle d'Aosta and Lithuania, or on the website page dedicated to EUROCLIP.

The organization said it was pleased with the quality of the short films and the work of the young people, their teachers and leaders. Fr Alberto Lagostina thanked the participants and stressed the need to "tell the good things that happen in our houses".

At the end of the evening, Fr Alberto Martelli, National Delegate for Social Communication, thanked the participants and looked forward to EUROCLIP in 2015, the year of the bicentenary of the birth of Don Bosco.

The Euroclip festival was initially intended as a competition open to all young people in Europe, but evolved into various initiatives at provincial or national level. The competition promoted by the ICP, now in its second year, will become a regular forum of expression of Salesian values by young people. ​​
